Heckler & Koch G36C in Mali

    This picture was posted a few days ago, on the public news page for the Swedish Armed Forces.

    Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip (man in green beret) visited the Swedish UN Force in Mali, called Camp Nobel.

    The force is about 250 people strong, and under UN’s command.

    You can see several AK5Cs, which is expected as it’s the issue rifle. The M90 uniform as well.

    What’s interesting is the short H&K G36 in the background, and the people without the M90 uniforms.

    The G36C is described by H&K as “The ultra-short assault rifle” – “The dimensions of a submachine gun with the terminal ballistics of the 5.56 mm NATO round. Developed for special tactical applications by police and military special forces.”

    “C” stands for “Compact”, with a barrel length of 228 mm / 9″. That’s short for a 5,56 mm rifle.

    There seems to be something going on here as well. HK MP7, perhaps?

    A second picture (click one picture forward) doesn’t display much more unfortunately.

    I normally wouldn’t share pictures of people who may have a need to remain anonymous, but theses pictures are already out in the wide open.
